****TODAY IS AFRICA DAY****
But what is Africa day?
... a quick history lesson In 1885 European leaders met at the Berlin Conference 1884-85 also known as "The scramble for Africa" conference to divide Africa and draw up borders that exist to this day... attended by representatives of Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, the USA, Turkey, France, and Sweden... on 25th May 1963 the Organization of African Unity which later became #AfricanUnion was established in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia (a most beautiful building if you get to visit you must!) in a bid to promote African unity amongst other issues.
